Before I ask this question, Yes, I do know wrestling is just a show but does anyone else think it's crappy how The Rock can leave wrestling and come back when he feels like it and have everything handed to him on a silver platter?

Like for example John Cena (love him or hate him) has been busting his ass in wrestling for years. Week after week he’s there (and makes time for being the number one wish granter for the “Make a Wish Foundation”) and then all of the sudden here comes The Rock (after choosing to leave wrestling in his prime to pursue another path) and then they have The Rock beating John Cena at Wrestlemania.

I bet the rock wouldn’t have even agreed to be at Wrestlemania unless he received it in writing that he would be the winner.

Now here comes the Royal Rumble (in January I believe) and he (The Rock) is just going to be handed a title shot. Usually when someone is gone for that long they have to “re-earn” their shot at the title. I just think it’s unfair to all those wrestlers who continue to put their bodies on the line week after week (whether it’s for the fans, the paycheck or both) to have someone who chose to leave wrestling, come back when they feel like it, and get what many of the wrestlers in the back haven’t even received and that’s a world championship match.

For the record I don’t have a problem with The Rock choosing a different career path, I just don’t think that if he comes back to “visit” he should just be handed a title shot or a win over, in my opinion one of the hardest working wrestlers (John Cena) today.
